Sugar Free Sunday--Peanut Butter Cookies

Welcome to this week's edition of Sugar Free Sunday!

I'm extremely pleased with my sugar-free baking efforts this week--I started with an easy recipe for Believe it or Not (no-flour) Peanut Butter Cookies, made a couple of substitutions, and came out with cookies that are quick, easy, and delicious.

  • 1 c peanut butter
  • 1 c Splenda
  • 1/2 c powdered milk
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1 egg

Measure your dry ingredients into a medium sized mixing bowl, then add the remaining ingredients and mix well. (Hint: Spray the measuring cup lightly with cooking spray before you measure the peanut butter and it'll be much easier to remove.)

Shape into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Flatten with a fork dipped in water in the traditional criss-cross pattern. Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes until cookies are set and very lightly browned around the edges. Be careful with these--it's hard to judge the color when they're brown to start with!

I ate some packaged sugar-free peanut cookies recently, and these are way better! Everyone in my family gave them the thumbs up, so I'll definitely be making these again!

How about you? What sugar-free recipes or products have you tried lately?

  1. Hmmm, looks good and interesting to make peanut butter cooking without sugar. I would love to try this someday!

  2. Those look fantastic! You wouldn't know they didn't have sugar or flour from the photo. We'll have to try those out - thanks for sharing!

  3. Amazing - no flour - no sugar. My hero.

  4. Great recipe! They look delicious. I've done the egg + PB + sugar version, it looks like the results are quite similar.
